Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Demi Lovato and her fiancé, Max Ehrich, have called off their engagement.
TMZ reported Thursday that the 28-year-old singer and actress and 29-year-old actor have split, just over two months after getting engaged during a beachside proposal.
People said ending the engagement was a "tough decision" for Lovato and Ehrich.
"It was a tough decision, but Demi and Max have decided to go their separate ways to focus on their respective careers," a source said. "They have respect and love for one another and will always cherish the time they spent together."
Fans started speculating about a split after Lovato's close friends and family unfollowed Ehrich on Instagram, according to E! News.
"Happy 6 months to my darling, the best father these pups could ever ask for... I love you BEYOND. Thank you for making my life so much better. @maxehrich I love you baby," Lovato wrote on Instagram.
"Words fall short, baby. Love you infinitely & then some. Thank you for being the light of my life. Cheers to forever," Ehrich said.
Lovato was wearing her engagement ring in a promo photo for Talkspace posted Thursday. She partnered with the online therapy platform this month to help raise awareness and combat stigma about mental health.
